The Xbox Bethesda Showcase event starts today and will be something of an E3 conference in disguise. We'll see footage of upcoming major titles from Microsoft and Bethesda, such as Starfield and maybe future Forza, Fable and Perfect Dark games. We might even see a first glimpse of Obsidian's already announced RPG Avowed, alongside some major announcements for other upcoming video games.

Also: We'll embed a livestream for the event in this very post closer to the time. So you can watch from here. We're also planning to live-blog the event, so stay tuned.
